Post Rumi: Haven?t I Told You?

By Jalal Eddin el Rumi (1207-1273)

Translated by Tatul Sonentz



Havent I told you

not to go there,

since I am your family me,

the only fountain of vivacity

in this ephemeral world?



And even if you managed, in a rage,

to cover a hundred thousand years range

away from me towards eternity,

I shall still be your point of return,

for I am your destiny.



Havent I told you

not to be

mollified by mundane designs,

for I am the one who depicts

the birthing center

of your beatitude?



Havent I told you

I am the sea,

you, the fish,

not to ever dehydrate

for I am your limpid water?



Havent I told you

“Avoid

the nets that snare birds

come to me, source of the force

of your flight, your wings,

your steps?”



Havent I told you:

Let them

isolate you,

to discourage you

I am the fire, the radiance,

the heat

that you breathe?



Havent I told you

of your

ugly looks hidden within you?

Disconnect yourself,

for I am

the source of your qualities.



If the light is in your heart

youll know where your house is,

and if you are loyal to God,

I am your very soul

believe it!



. Jalal Eddin el Rumi (1207-1273)
